Born and raised on the salt flats of The Great Salt Lake, La'akea has now come full circle as she gathers Puna Pa'akai. "Working with the salt, being with it, gathering it, feeds my salty soul she says." I am living my desired experience, loving what I do." Joy for her is sharing information about salt and the health benifits.
La'akea has always been creatively inspired by nature. The beauty of Northern Utah influenced her art with the color pallet it uniquely provides. La'akeas life journey took her to the Island of Molokai and then to the Big Island where she now lives. The Mana(life force) of the Islands is her pallet and inspiration now.
I was blessed to have been able to offer a Makana(gift) to the Wa'a Te Matau O Maui in Aoteroa(NZ).
